Supplies remain scarce, but will increase through the month. After weeks of elevated levels, prices are starting to inch down. Markon First Crop (MFC) Asparagus is available.


  • Northern Baja, Sonora, and Caborca are the primary growing regions
  • Small-diameter stalks continue to dominate yields, but jumbo and extra-large sizes are increasingly obtainable
  • Expect supplies to increase and prices to ease further through the rest January as more Caborca growers begin harvesting


  • Minimal volume is being imported into the U.S. (via Miami, Florida)
  • FOB costs remain comparable from both regions, though some freight savings are available for Eastern DCs
  • Expect high prices and extremely tight supplies into early February
